The captivating show ignites Sydney Harbour’s night sky to send off the year and welcome in a new one. The family fireworks kick off at 9pm, followed by the mesmerising midnight show that launches from the Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, and barges around the harbour. Before and in-between the shows, there will be a range of entertainment and activities around the foreshore and Royal Botanic Gardens to celebrate the new year.
